Second National Diabetes Campaign, 'Together 2 Goal' in Orlando

In order to improve the management of Type 2 Diabetes, American Medical Group Association (AMGA) Foundation launched a national campaign, Diabetes: Together 2 Goal, in the United States. This three-year initiative will challenge leading healthcare organizations to work together to transform diabetes care for millions across the country.

Together 2 Goal is the second campaign in the AMGA Foundation's Chronic Care Challenge. In the first campaign, Measure Up/Pressure Down, nearly 150 AMGA members worked together to improve blood pressure detection or control for more than half a million Americans. The Together 2 Goal campaign will leverage this momentum and success to improve care for 1 million people with Type 2 diabetes.

Hundreds of AMGA medical groups and health systems from across the country were in attendance at today's campaign premiere event in Orlando during the AMGA 2016 Annual Conference. This extraordinary event featured keynote speaker Sugar Ray Leonard - Olympic athlete, world champion boxer, and diabetes advocate - who provided remarks and expressed his support for the campaign''s efforts to "knock out" this disease.

"We are proud to launch our second campaign and build upon the hard work that our members are doing to address the nation's most pressing chronic conditions," says Donald W. Fisher, Ph.D., CAE, President and Chief Executive Officer of AMGA and Secretary of the Board of AMGA Foundation. "We strongly believe that over the next three years and with the dedication and commitment of some of the largest and most prestigious health care systems in the country, we will see improved care among people with Type 2 diabetes and set them on a better path to live longer, healthier lives."

To date, over 100 AMGA members have committed to implementing at least one of the "campaign planks" - 11 evidence-based care processes - that will improve the care of people with the condition by empowering patients, improving care delivery, and leveraging information technology. Additionally, campaign participants will report data on a quarterly basis to measure progress towards this goal and utilize the campaign's resources and tools to achieve this mark.
